Online reservations for the first 95 XSR900 Abarth bikes opens soon
If you want to be among the first to own the exciting new factory-built XSR900 Abarth, we strongly recommend that you set your smart phone alarm for 16.00 hours UK time on 17th January 2017 - because that's when Yamaha's dedicated online registration system for the first 95 units goes live.
Due to arrive in Yamaha dealer showrooms in April 2017, this exclusive, limited edition café racer is the result of a special collaboration with Abarth, one of Italy's most famous automotive brands. Each bike will be individually numbered, and features Abarth logos as well as a range of premium lightweight components and a head-turning new colour scheme.
Powered by Yamaha's torque-rich, 850cc, in-line, 3-cylinder engine that comes equipped with traction control and an assist and slipper clutch, the XSR900 Abarth delivers thrilling acceleration and outstanding performance.
Special equipment includes a suede sports seat with a removable cover, as well as lightweight carbon bodywork and a full Akrapovi? exhaust with titanium double slip-on muffler. And to give this fashionable café racer a sleeker and more compact tail end, final production models will feature a new licence plate holder that's sportier and lighter than the unit seen on the XSR900 Abarth pre-production show model.
Only the first 95 customers will be able to register their online order for the limited edition XSR900 Abarth from 16.00 hours on 17th January 2017. As well as being amongst the first to own this café racer special, each of the 95 online customers - plus a companion - will also be invited to join an exclusive Yamaha VIP Abarth Experience after the purchase has been confirmed with their Yamaha dealer.
Taking place during the Spring-Summer of 2017, these prestigious owner experience events will run between May 1st and June 16th at race circuits in Italy, Germany, France, Spain, Portugal, Austria and the UK. Each of the 95 Yamaha VIP Abarth Experience pass holders will be given the unique opportunity to join us at one of these exclusive Abarth Days that are designed to introduce motorsport fans to the Scorpion brand's distinctive race-bred philosophy.
During the action-packed Yamaha VIP Abarth Experience you'll have the opportunity to test drive a range of vehicles from the Abarth line-up on the circuit - and you will also be invited to join one of our professional racing drivers for an adrenaline-fueled Abarth racetrack experience!
As well as all of this, you'll also be given the exclusive opportunity to visit Abarth's Turin Headquarter at any time in 2017 by prior appointment, where you can feel the very special Abarth spirit that has been an integral part of motor sport for seven decades!
After the first 95 online registrations and subsequent purchases have been confirmed, the remaining units of the new XSR900 Abarth will be made available through Yamaha motorcycle dealers from spring 2017 onwards.
